I want to study medicine in the Netherlands, but I don't take Physics and need to fulfill the requirements by taking the Boswell-Beta or CCVX exam. I'm kind of triggered, since I'm in the IB and it's not even possible to take all three sciences and it's sad that the universities don't take that into consideration. Nevertheless, my questions are:
1. What's the difference between Boswell-Beta and CCVX?
2. Is it possible to learn the Physics material in 1.5 months if I haven't taken Physics in about 2 years?
3. How much do I need to score to pass the exam?

Thank you!

hey!
I don't know answers to any of your questions unfortunately, but just wanted to let you know that I'm in a similar situation so we can discuss it!
I'm probably taking the Boswell Beta one since I don't think the CCVX are offered in summer and I really want to do one in summer so after the final exams
looking at the topics (I haven't found any specific specification) it looks like there is a lot of it (depends how much in depth it is), but should be manageabl probably, especially that from what I know we just have to pass it, no matter what the exact score is.
btw, are you applying to Groningen or Maastricht? and are you from the UK or somewhere else?

Hey! Yeah there seems to be a lot of topics, but I would be aiming just to pass too. So I hope it's manageable. I'm also thinking of taking it in the summer. Are you planning to study on your own or take some courses? I'm applying to Groningen and I'm from Eastern Europe

cool! I'm also (probably) applying to Groningen and I'm from Eastern Europe, too I don't think I will take the official courses because they seem to be very expensive, but I think I might just find a tutor who would go through the specification with me
btw, what do you think of the idea of learning Dutch in 3 years and then studying in Dutch? sounds terrifying to me haha

Yeah, I'm planning to interrogate my Physics HL friends About the language - I was worried about that too, but I've talked to a few international students who study/have studied in the Netherlands and they have ensured that it is very possible, especially if you put in the extra effort and, for example, take part in the communities in the university, etc. There are also available language courses provided by uni. So, I'm kind of less stressed about it now, but we'll see hah.

Hi! I decided not to take the place at uni and instead take a gap year, so I'm not taking the exam (at least not this year). But good luck to you!

Hi, i'm also taking the exam of botswell beta in Physics and chemistry and I have failed both once (only had 20 days to go through both topics and I haven't done ANY science in 4 years so makes sense). I am currently studying solo on both topic to pass it in April. So far I am making progress but sadly they removed the list of topics we need to study for physics and replaced it with a vague "all the VWO program" anyone got a screenshot?

also 5.5 is passing grade

you can work on the mock exam they give out on the website. and also having a standard book like "advanced physics for you" is pretty good.
Good luck to you all
